Dublin school board members March 18 will hear suggestions to name the elementary school that will be built on Bright Road.
Their meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. Monday, March 18, at Davis Middle School, 2400 Sutter Parkway.
Names include Hopewell, Bright Road, Amorose and Chiweber, said Doug Baker, the district's public-information officer.
Names came from a survey the district's elementary-naming committee had produced. About 5,000 people responded to the survey, Baker said.
Baker didn't mention the other elementary school that is being built on Ravenhill Parkway in Jerome Township.
The district also is moving forward with design for a new middle school that would be built near the elementary school in Jerome Village.
On Jan. 14, the school board unanimously approved a resolution for a guaranteed maximum price for the two elementaries -- for construction-management firm Corna Kokosing Construction Co., Baker said.
A guaranteed maximum price, or GMP, is an agreement on a cost that can’t be exceeded, based upon a project scope, according to Jeff Stark, chief operating officer for the district. Unless there are changes in the project scope or unforeseen conditions, the construction company would pay anything over the agreed cost, he said.
Corna Kokosing’s GMP is $47,411,030, according to a school board memo associated with the resolution.
Funding for the two buildings, which will be on Bright Road and off Ravenhill Parkway in Jerome Village, will come from the combined $195 million bond issue, 2-mill permanent-improvements levy and 5.9-mill operating levy voters approved in November.
